A father and daughter write about their family's decision to sell their home, move into a smaller house, and put half of the proceeds toward helping a village in Ghana. Fred Sanders and Jen Taylor fit the roles of father and daughter well. Sanders conveys the right balance of altruism and doubt. He also comes up with dead-on voices for eager daughter Hannah and skeptical son Joseph during the family discussions of the project. With youthful exuberance Jen Taylor reads Hannah's advice on instilling charitable behavior in families. The Salwens' rare commitment to helping others, unshaken by the recent drop in home prices, will give listeners much to consider. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
